2022 READ FOR THE RECORD SELECTION, "NIGEL AND THE MOON" BY ANTWAN EADY Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is a global moment to raise awareness around the critical importance of early literacy and increase access to high-quality children’s books. Each year Read for the Record brings together millions of adults and children as they read the same book on the same day, building an intergenerational community through reading. To date, over 24 million people have participated in Read for the Record, and hundreds of thousands of high-quality books have been distributed to children in underserved communities across the United States.

On October 27, 2022, join us in reading written by Antwan Eady and illustrated by Gracey Zhang.

Nigel and the Moon is about a young boy who dreams big, but is too scared to share his dreams with the world. Instead, every night he tells his dream of becoming an astronaut, dancer, and superhero to the moon. As his class moves through career week, Nigel’s community helps him build up confidence in who he is. This book encourages children to celebrate where they come from, who they are, and who they want to be. Nigel and the Moon is published by HarperCollins.
